Some of the best of literature these days seem? to be in adver tising That is, if literature is for the purpose of conveying thoughts,, Ideas and to promote action?word carpentering to these ends. It is true that there is no mystic poetry in advertising, nor ro mance save as it is sometimes used to picture the profit possibilities af far-off mining and oil regions, to appeal to the imaginations of those of us to whom distant pastutes always seem the greenest I * The-a*erage advertisement stimulates more thought, and action upon the thought, and by iti appeal to our sense o'f pleasure or profit than any other literary form. And it does it in less space and in a fewer, number of words. The reason for this economy and efficiency is this: An advertiser pays a large sum for the white space and he is .naturally economical with it. More thought is put upon the space. He conveys the idea and promotes the action with the fewest number of carefully selected expressions. ?** . Every word, phrase, sentence and paragraph is weighed to this end. Other forms of writing are paid for by the number of words or space occupied, and there is nof the natural incentive to economy of -xpression as in advertising. Advertisers paying large sums for white space as they do? have found it economical to employ men skilled in the art of expres sion?word carpentering; for more results are obtained for the ex ->ent?rare in white space. In this way some of the best of writers of the younger genera tion have been drawn into the advertising field?men with reputations ji other and wider literary fields. To go over the files of any newspaper or magazine is to find a rast improvement in tie advertising within a very few years. There is more logic and reason in advertising?more real sales Tnanghrp. There is the same eye appeal that the skilled personal salesman -night make through the ear of a possible buyer. Highly trairfed artists?true artists?have been drawn into the idyerrtiaing field, men as skilled in the handling of form and color as those m the composition of the text. AdTtTTtising today is not only interesting and attractive^ but it is .fury sale ?-man.-h if on paper. What -we can't understand is how the Bolsheviki, half-starved, lake-d, u-nwarmed and weakened by disease, can rally and lick the tar ?rot of overwhelming numbers of the opposition. If the headlines concerning the running amuck of part of the :onr?try get your goat, reflect how great a part of the country hasn't ret gone crazy and calm yourself. Senator McNary says the present sugar famine conditions are Psychological. That's encouraging. Now, perhaps, he will show us ? way to sweeten coffee with psychology. X<-w YcJrk longshoremen are getting back to work, and by exer TTising strict economy they can in six months be as well off as they were before they struck. The reason half of us haven't enough sugar on hand to last until -norning is because the other half has enough on hand to last until lerxTt summer.

And so with great content to bed Thousands of pedestrians on Forty aacond street west were entertained, Instructed and thrilled to sympa thetic mirth last week by the sign painted on the shop window of a well-known hatter, who for years bas been amiably and profitably sup plying commuters, nsttves, visiting firemen snd foreign guests with modish, rakish, modest, sportive, debonair and snappy cbspeauz for -moderate sums. But the other day the iron entered Into tbe good hattlat's soul and Irony into his window advertise ments. The sign on tb? window read: Keep This Under Tour Hat! The reason I am moving.

A boss carpenter drew up in his light running automobile along-side the road, and at the same time a heavy touring car containing a well known dodger of debts stopped on the other, side of the highway. The debt dodger owed atte carpen ter a considerable sum for labor and materials for two years. "I think we will get some rain." remarked the occupant, of th? targar car by way of showing a neighborly spirit. "Tes." replied the .si renter, ?'?a ture pays her debts."
